Review

«Walk into Matthew Farber’s middle school classroom and you’ll meet students who consider themselves beta testers of innovative learning experiences. You’ll see an inspired teacher who understands how to combine cutting-edge game mechanics with instructional strategies like project-based learning. I haven’t had the pleasure of that classroom visit just yet, but reading ‘Gamify Your Classroom’ is the next best thing. Farber, as author, shares his own journey into understanding the power of games for learning. He invites readers along as he interviews experts and learns from those on the frontiers of this exciting space. Then he brings us back to the magic circle of the classroom, where games create teachable moments for engaged, inspired learners.» (Suzie Boss, Author of ‘Bringing Innovation to School’; national faculty member, Buck Institute for Education)
«‘Gamify Your Classroom’ is a clear-headed dissection of the semantic muddle and self-serving hype surrounding game-based learning and gamification. Meticulously researched and featuring insights from a host of educators and game designers, as well as his own enthusiastic adventures in the classroom, Matthew Farber’s book is an impressive primer, revealing what works and what doesn’t out here on education’s exciting new frontier.» (Lee Sheldon, Author of ‘The Multiplayer Classroom’; Associate Professor in the Department of Communication and Media Games and Simulation Arts and Sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)

This has recent research and a lot of experience gathered together in one book. I found it a useful read for my own classroom. It offers strong explanations about gamifying a classroom, has tons of resource links, and brings in interviews with current specialists in the field. While I found this book helpful, I wish there was more information about planning and starting the gamification process.

Wonderfully clever and refreshing approach to using games in the classroom. I am a board game designer focusing solely on science games for the classroom. I gleaned much insight from Mathew's exhaustive examples, and academic approach to the topic!

Teachers and Educators wanting to learn about Game-Based learning will benefit greatly from this book. The author does a wonderful job of compiling large amounts of tips, ideas, knowledge, and resources. The book is very comprehensive as it covers a vast array of topics. At the end of every chapter there are small lists of Lesson Plan ideas, Games, and Resources.

Game Designers will also benefit greatly from the book, even if their focus is not on games that teach or provide learning experiences, the book includes many useful bits of information, tips, and resources for making games effectively fun and engaging. In particular, the games listed as examples of successful games can serve as inspiration and reference in what works and what doesn't.

As an educator and member of a family of teachers, and as father of two game designers, I have found this book to be very helpful and inspirational.
